October 2017 CAPH Conference

CAPH returns to the Eden Project on Friday 20th October 2017 for a one day conference:
Big Stuff About the Brain.
We are welcoming Dr Andrew Curran as our keynote speaker. A practicing paediatric neurologist at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, Andrew makes the complicated workings of the learning brain not simple but understandable. And he does it in such a way that everyone can use what they have learned to improve what goes on in school.  
When you get to hear Andrew speak, you will not only remember it forever but you will also immediately ask yourself why an understanding of the neurobiology of living, loving, learning and growing isn’t on the syllabus for all teacher training everywhere? But then not all neurobiologists speak with the same no-nonsense honesty, depth and breadth of knowledge and raw, unnerving passion that Andrew exhibits when he speaks.
The day will also feature inputs from the Headstart Kernow team, Kernow Education Arts Partnership and The Story Republicans.
The Market Place will provide opportunities to browse the latest education products and services, and also offer mini-workshops, games, and challenges.

Timings: 8.30am-1.45pm
Cost: Free for CAPH member schools, 2 free places per school
